Boy or Girl?

Is baby Bliss a boy or a girl?

I have collected all the old wives tales that I have found so far and copied them here (there are some contradictions but hey - I copied them as I found them).

The ones in bold are ones that apply so far. I'll bold new signs as they occur

  • It's a boy if:

  • You have nausea in the morning
  • You did not have morning sickness
  • Your baby's heart rate is less than 140 beats per minute
  • The heartbeat sounds like a train
  • You are carrying the extra weight out front
  • Your belly looks like a basketball
  • Your areolas have darkened considerably
  • You are carrying low
  • You are craving salty or sour foods
  • You are craving protein -- meats and cheese
  • Your feet are colder than they were before pregnancy
  • The hair on your legs has grown faster during pregnancy
  • Your hands are very dry
  • Your pillow faces north when you sleep
  • Dad-to-be is gaining weight, right along with you
  • Pregnancy has you looking better than ever
  • Your urine is bright yellow in colour
  • Your nose is spreading
  • Your face gets thinner
  • You hang your wedding ring over your belly and it moves in circles
  • You are having headaches
  • You add your age at the time of conception and the number for the month you conceived and the sum is an even number
  • Ovulation occurred between a full moon and the day before a new moon
  • You hang a needle on a thread over your belly and it goes side to side

  • It's a girl if:

  • You have nausea in the evening
  • You have morning sickness
  • Your baby's heart rate is at least 140 beats per minute
  • The heartbeat sounds like a galloping horse
  • You are carrying the weight in your hips and rear
  • Your left breast is larger than your right breast
  • Your hair develops red highlights
  • You are carrying high
  • Your belly looks like a watermelon
  • You are craving sweets
  • You are craving fruit
  • You crave orange juice
  • You don't look quite as good as normal during pregnancy
  • You are moodier than usual during pregnancy
  • Your face breaks out more than usual
  • You refuse to eat the heel of a loaf of bread
  • Your breasts have really blossomed!
  • Your pillow faces south when you sleep
  • Your urine is a dull yellow colour
  • Your face gets fatter 
  • You hang your wedding ring over your belly and it moves from side to side
  • You add your age at the time of conception and the number for the month you conceived and the sum is an odd number
  • Ovulation occurred between a new moon and the day before a full moon
  • You hang a needle on a thread over your belly and it goes around in circles







If you have your own prediction or know of any other ways to tell the sex of the baby that I can add to the list, please comment.

  1. So Em, have you tried any of these and what result did you have. I total amazed by your news. You will be a great mum and I'm sure your parents are over the moon.

  2. Yes I think they are quite happy - the ones in bold (though it doesn't show up that well) are the ones I have... so far it's leaning towards a boy...

  3. Are you going to find out during you scan what sex the baby is or wait until the birth.

  4. I'm not sure yet Lisa. Some days I really want to know, and some days I really enjoy not knowing. I guess it will depend what mood I am on the day!
